The Waiting Lists

If your child has been placed on the waiting list, we would suggest that you confirm your interest in a place at Loreto Convent Gibraltar by email in January of the year you wish your child to be admitted. Priority is given to children who are intending to complete their education at Loreto Convent Gibraltar, children who are resident in Gibraltar and the date of receipt of the application form at Loreto.

In order to ensure that the English Language is learnt by pupils, Non-English speaking pupil numbers are limited and as such will be placed on the waiting lists once the allocated spaces have been filled. We also encourage non-English speaking pupils to start their education at Loreto Convent Gibraltar in Nursery 2.
